Tool talk with DevCo

Thursday, February 23rd, 2006

David Intersimone, VP of Developer Relations and Chief Evangelist, and Rob Cheng, Director of Products, was recently interviewed by ADT’s senior editor, Kathleen Richards. I’d like to highlight a few quotes from this interview. Full article can be found here.

David Intersimone on on DevCo - "It is [a] profitable business in an area that is central to the world of software development."

Rob Cheng - "Not only is it a profitable business, but it is a business with real growth prospects."

Rob Cheng - "There is definitely still room for innovation and growth in the IDE space."

David Intersimone - "Last week we put up a trial edition of Borland Developer Studio and a Flash demo to get all those people that may be sitting on the fence or maybe are looking for more productivity to download it and try it."

And finally, I’d like to quote one entire question and answer:

ADT: "What does this divestiture mean for people using these tools?"

Intersimone: "It means that, one, they know that we are still here working; nothing has been stopped. Two, their investment in Delphi, in JBuilder, in their projects, million of lines of source code, in the whole ecosystem that surrounds JBuilder with Java beans components, with plug-ins, and open tools, the Eclipse community and all their plug-ins that work with JBuilder on Eclipse–we also have thousands of components for Delphi on Win 32 and for .NET–all of that investment is secure. The book authors, the trainers, the consultants, all of those things, all of those people and all of those companies–their investment is secure because we are moving forward, and this new company will be created, and we will keep focusing on our customers’ success." (emphasis is mine)

eWeek: Borland IDE Users Look Ahead

eWeek: "Borland IDE Users Look Ahead"

It’s a fabulous day!

Wednesday, February 8th, 2006

The sun is shining outside, not a cloud in the sky, and I don’t think I’ve been this excited since I boarded the plane to relocate from Sweden to the US in March of 1996 to work for Borland International.

Just as I was then, I’m extremely excited, and I’m confident that February 8, 2006 will go down in history as an awesome day for existing and coming customers of all the IDE products, InterBase, etc.

I joined Borland because of awesome products, community, innovation, etc. I love helping people become successful with our tools.

Do I know for sure what’s around the corner? No.

But I do know this for sure… We have a tremendous opportunity in front of us, a passionate team that is as excited and committed as I am, great technology, great products, and I believe that we can be wildly successful as a new entity.

In a way, I’ve waited for this day for almost 10 years.

Cheers! :)
